Tour is self guided so you can stay as little or long as you like. You first view everything from ground level then go up stairs. Cost $12 for 2 adults and 2 children. Amazing the amount of detail put in to the model. Train has stopped working but hot air ballons, lights, cranes etc still functioned. Well worth the... More

We've been to Helen a couple of times, but this was our first visit to Charlemagne's Kingdom. I wish we had seen it in its heydey! The model railway was the owner's retirement project. Now that he's much older, he's selling the property and everything in it. I hope someone buys it and renovates it because it's a beautiful model... More

It was a nice place to visit.However it would have been a bit better for us if the trains had been running that day.There was a nice selection of puzzles there also.

Model trains travel through a miniature German alpine village and through the countryside. We took a grandchild, but enjoyed it ourselves as much as the child did. A retired German man built this as a labor of love. It fits perfectly with Helen's alpine German theme.
